Despite insisting that goalkeeper David de Gea will remain at the club, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has once again left him out of the squad for a Champions League appearance.

Chelsea wary of long trips ahead after Champions League draw

Last year no Premier League side made it past the Champions League round of 16. How will they fare this year?

Chelsea face "not an easy draw at all" after they were placed in a Champions League group with Porto, Dynamo Kiev and Maccabi Tel Aviv, former Blues goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini says.

Manager Jose Mourinho is intimately familiar with Porto, having led them to the European title in 2004.

The Blues managed to avoid the elite Madrid clubs that were in Pot 2, but Cudicini, who attended the draw in his role as global ambassador for Chelsea, insisted that Porto will be every bit as difficult.
